This article reports that a new European research project is underway to develop guidelines for the management of future transport demand through the integration of urban transport and planning policies. Using European cities and towns as case studies the TRANSport Planning, Land Use and Sustainability project will review the transport and land use planning processes being applied throughout the European Union and Eastern Europe. The project team is especially interested in the views and experiences of local authorities, where the integration of planning policies is recognized as an important step in achieving sustainability, particularly in transport management. Exploring the barriers to integration and the ways in which these have been overcome will enable the project team to produce a set of planning tools. These will offer planners and policymakers at all levels, best practice guidance for integrating transport and land use planning activities.
